Barnet Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Information, Advice and Support Service provides impartial advice, information and support on matters relating to education for young people and parents of children with special educational needs (SEN) between the ages of 0-25. The service aims to help parents play a valued and active role in their child's education and enable parents to make informed choices. The service encourages joint working between parents, schools, the Local Authority (LA) and other agencies. Barnet SEND offers a wide range of services including help with statutory assessment and Education and Health care plan (EHCP) procedures, information on appeals to SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal), advice on issues around school placement, SEN guidance and support to write letters to school/LA. To ensure impartiality there is a SEND Advisory Group with representatives from parents and the voluntary sector to oversee the work of the service.
